Thursday thoughts…

If you spend too much time thinking about a thing,
you will never get it done.
Bruce Lee

This quote is right on, and I have proved it many times. The latest is the bathroom. I had some work done by my handyman extraordinaire a few weeks ago, and it is ready for me to paint.

Every morning when I get up, I say today is the day to paint. Then I read the paper, do the puzzles, have breakfast, and go for my walk. When I get home, I think about painting, and then I find something else to do.

Maybe I should call the guy that did some painting for me a couple of years ago? That sounds like a plan! I am going to think about it. Then I am going to call him!

Monday musings…

Whoever said “Out of sight, out of mind”
never had a spider disappear in their bedroom.
Anonymous

I have never liked spiders. Never have and never will. I will even admit that I am afraid of them. I know it is silly to be frightened by them, but I am. Have been since I was a child.

They are so sneaky. And when one knows I have seen it, it thinks it’s fun to torment me. It hurries up a wall to the ceiling or under the sofa or worse, under the bed. Any place I can’t get to it.

There is no way I can relax if I know one is wandering around in my home. I become a madwoman until I squish it. In general, any bug that enters my abode does so as a death wish. But spiders have always been the worst, until recently.

There are a lot of cicadas this year, and they seem to like my balcony. Teddy has taken a liking to them. That’s okay, except he brings them inside. Like spiders, they are good at finding places difficult for me to get to them. Unlike spiders they are noisy so it’s easy to know where they are. But they fly! Not always away from me sometimes, right at me.

Teddy thinks it is great fun.
I can hardly wait for cold weather!
